Broome Police and Community Youth Centres (PCYC) have received amazing $107,678 in funding from the WA Police Special Plate Fund to help deliver their Safe Space program.
The Broome PCYC Safe Space program will run after-hours on Friday and Saturday nights from 5pm to 10pm to provide young people with a supervised, non-threatening environment where they can participate in a variety of activities and meet new friends.
Safe Space will offer young people access to qualified youth workers, who are available to engage in one-on-one mentoring and provide a safe and engaging space in which young people can feel that they are able to openly communicate and express their issues and needs.
The Safe Space program will also provide a range of recreation and sporting activities along with educational personal development and life skills workshops on topics including drugs and alcohol awareness, cooking, healthy living and protective behaviours.
Safe Space participants will be provided with free meals and transportation home after each session and they will have the opportunity to interact with local Youth Crime Intervention Officers from the WA Police, helping break down barriers and building a rapport with them in a fun and non-threatening environment.
Police Minister Michelle Roberts announced the funding and commented that due to the past success of WA PCYC Safe Space around the state, the program would be a great opportunity to engage young people in a positive way in Broome.
Broome PCYC centre manager Annie Dann was delighted with the announcement and commented that it would be incredibly beneficial for the community.
“This will allow our youth to have their own space where they can be themselves and have fun.”
